I can't Wait for Breaking Bad to Finally Be Over.

I'm sick of hearing about it. Everybody I know is crying about it ending today on Facebook. Just shut up. It's a TV show.

Anybody else feel the same?

I can't wait for the remaining episodes to be available on Netflix.

I have never seen it. It sounds boring.

R1,

With stuff like this...

Omg! It's happening RIGHT NOW! I might need some tissues..

*waves goodbye*

#GoodbyeBreakingBad

Breaking Bad so soon! Bittersweet!

I have never seen an episode but feel like I have from all the media coverage. I put off watching Mad Men for three years. It's as boring as I thought it would be. I'm sure BrBa is genius television but have no interest in a show about Meth dealers. Hope the fans are not as disappointed as True Blood and Dexter fans have been this year.

You guys missed something. This was a great show with excellent writing, acting, directing -- you name it. Well, all the Emmys and noms are proof of that. I usually don't even watch dramas, but this one had me from "chemistry teacher diagnosed with cancer becomes a meth cook to leave money for his family."

But, the funny thing is that now was the time for the show to end. The complete story was told.I'm so glad I watched every episode!

Very Weeds-ish.

Middle class descending into the criminal underworld.

R5,

Breaking Bad is not about meth dealers. It is about law-abiding citizens.

by Anonymousreply 1009/29/2013

I don't understand the reason for this thread. This show just won an Emmy right before it's end. Of course, there's going to be a lot of buzz surrounding it!! I love the show, but I've had to go through constantly hearing about shows I never liked or never watched also.

Not even remotely close. "Weeds" was primarily a comedy, with tons of very attractive people having very hot sex. A better point of contract, actually, would be "The Sopranos" or even "The Godfather," as Heisenberg was clearly "the Don" of the Southwestern drug cartel, and like Tony Soprano and various Corleones, his quest for power took him down countless psychological paths.

It was a brilliant show, what a pity that not everyone has the capacity to appreciate it. I feel sorry for you.

I'm with you, OP. But the viewers have invested a lot of time and energy and emotion and identification in this show. I say let 'em have their day. They'll shut up eventually.

Emmy's weren't enough for this series. Perfect in every sense.

And as a reward for our loyalty and recognition, they gave us the exact, sensible ending we needed.

Laughing that the OP still uses Facebook, yet bitches about having to hear about Breaking Bad..

by Anonymousreply 2109/29/2013

I don't know how many people actually watched this, but the way the fuckin media talked about it, you would think every home in America watched this shit. The truth is spin/hype are the only way to get anyone to watch because it's a cable show, and the audience is so fragmented these days (500+ channels/Netflix/downloads/DVDs etc) that I would be willing to bet less than 5 or six million people watched the final show. Back in the day an average episode of Three's Company, Sanford and Son or Eight is Enough would draw something like 33 million viewers.I'd say most folks don't watch or care about Breaking Bad.

That is precisely why they are being mocked, R19. Are you naturally stupid or deliberately obtuse?

Either way, welcome to the Datalounge. Do try to keep up. If you find that the way we do things here doesn't suit you, bon voyage.

OP, maybe you are spending too much time on Facebook.

by Anonymousreply 2609/30/2013

I'd call it extremely entertaining, but not brilliant. It was ultimately just a macho fantasy, as exemplified by the fact that the fans HATED the wife. Fans were even making death threats against the actress, so much so that she went public about it. A brilliant show would have something to say, but BB didn't really. It was just an updated John Wayne movie, something like that. Zero gay content too, of course, had to keep it safe for all the homophobic straights watching.

Skyler had plenty of fans. There's a small looney minority of viewers that can't separate fact from fiction, but I guess you can't keep the mentally ill from watching tv. And the show didn't have "zero gay content." The best villain in the show was gay. They didn't make a big deal about it because it had no relevance to the story.

"Macho fantasy"? You must be thinking of Sons of Anarchy. There was nothing macho about Walter White.

Almost zero gay content. There were some indications that one of the main/coolest antagonists could have been gay. Of course he kept it very vague and refuses to confirm it.

Which I do think a huge part of that he didn't want fanboys being upset that the badass Gus character they loved was gay.

[quote]"Macho fantasy"? You must be thinking of Sons of Anarchy. There was nothing macho about Walter White.

I'd disagree. A lot of wimpy, comic book geek types loved Walter White because he was one of them (Mr. Chips) and then became a bad ass (Scarface). Through WW, they vicariously made millions of dollars and took revenge on their enemies. I know that wasn't what Vince Gilligan was going for, but believe me, that was the attraction for a LOT of the fan base.

By and large, I agree with what R27 had to say. Fun, but hardly brilliant.

by Anonymousreply 3109/30/2013

I watched the first three episodes in a binge and have had no desire to continue watching. Only when someone I know mentions how good it is or when media deluges like the one of the past weekend occur do I consider going back to it. But then I usually end up busy with something else.

Now that I know the ending, doesn't seem worth it.

by Anonymousreply 3209/30/2013

The only kind of people worse than the "if you don't watch BB your life has no value" people are the "depicting violence glorifies violence" maroons like R25. If we didn't have storytelling that depicted violence we would have no Greek epics, no Shakespeare, and so on and so forth.

by Anonymousreply 3309/30/2013

R29 Re Skyler: I saw a news interview with Vince Gilligan yesterday in which he said that he thought the reason why a fairly large number of BB fans didn't like Skyler was because she's a "powerless" character and audiences tend to like powerful characters. He clarified that by going along with Walt's business she "painted herself into a corner" with very little options.

I can see that, but I always thought Skyler herself was portrayed realistically. I never got the Skyler hate since she wasn't a weakling -- case in point when she made a scene in the restaurant with Hank screaming "Am I under arrest?" so she could walk away from her cop bro in law. But oftentimes, she was also passive-agressive which diluted her power -- ie the affair with total loser Ted.

I'm only gonna watch it for the hot RW Mitte. Crip hot!

by Anonymousreply 3509/30/2013

I liked Skyler throughout the whole show except for the period when she had an affair with Ted.

The media hypes the stuff THEY watch, listen to, buy. Always. They live in their little hipster bubble, and write for each other. That's why something like Girls, which has thoroughly unremarkable ratings, gets tons of ink and magazine covers and is spoken of as if it's the obsession of the entire nation, when in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

Weak of Vince Gilligan to say it is open to interpretation, when it's clear that Gus' partner's death is one of the things that motivates Gus. Maybe the main motivation. When the partner dies, it's the only time you ever see Gus cry or genuinely care for another human being. I just did a Google search on this and can't believe that this is a debatable issue. Of course Gus was gay.

by Anonymousreply 3910/01/2013

[quote]Weak of Vince Gilligan to say it is open to interpretation

Agreed. He's clearly pandering to the Ain't-It-Cool part of the show's fanbase, who are rabid homophobes and couldn't deal with one of their favorite bad-ass characters being gay.

There is pretty much NOTHING to interpret in BREAKING BAD. It is what it is. Even things like Walt's vitriolic phone call to Skyler a few episodes back - which was debated endlessly amongst fans the next day - was explained in fairly clear-cut terms in the next episode.

by Anonymousreply 4010/01/2013

Now that I think about I don't actually know anyone who watches it. There's a shitload about it in the online media, of course. But I think the previous poster is right that it's constantly in the media because it's what THEY'RE watching.

I have a friend who loves Mad Men and loaned me his DVDs so that I'd watch it and love it too. I'm almost through Season One. It's OK. Not something I'd choose to watch on my own. Looks cool, though. I love the 60s look and vibe. And John Hamm is hot. But apart from that there's nothing to hold my interest.

I'm with you, OP. It's a fucking TV show--anyone that caught up in it must be in desperate need of a life.

And really, don't we do this every year or so? With the latest "greatest show ever"? No one cares once it's been gone a month.

The lead actor looked stupid with a shaved head. He was better as the dad on Malcolm in the Middle. That is why I didn't watch it.

by Anonymousreply 4510/01/2013

R45 The lead character in BB, unlike the Dad in Malcolm, has cancer, dumbass. Walt gets chemo, pukes his guts out and shaves his head. You don't deserve "snarky" just insults for your pointless stupidity.

R46, and YOU are an idiot for not reading what this WEBSITE IS ALL ABOUT. What part of "pointless bitchery" do you not understand? Look up and to the left, under the Datalounge logo? Now, shut the fuck up.

It's a character on a FICTIONAL show. "Walt" has cancer but the actor doesn't. And he looks stupid with a bald head.

by Anonymousreply 4810/01/2013

R48 I said POINTLESS STUPIDITY about your post, so you're missing the point to harp about DL's pointless bitchery. Bitchery is good, stupidity isn't so, yeah keep talking on about an actor playing a cancer patient "looking stupid with a bald head" because that will make you look so smart and snarky. I'm glad you didn't watch Breaking Bad because you most likely wouldn't have been able to understand it fully.

Anyone caught up in complaining about a show they don't like or watch must be in desperate need of a life, R42. You sound like one miserable SOB.

by Anonymousreply 5010/01/2013

I thought it was really obvious that Gus was gay. One of the main reasons he went psycho is because the character (who was OBVIOUSLY his boyfriend) was murdered in front of him. Anyone denying he is gay has serious attention issues or is a big fat homophobe.
